CLOAK AND DAGGER
Cloak and Dagger opened over the NBC network on May 7, 1950. It had a short run through the Summer on Sundays, changing to Fridays after its Summer run. The last show aired Oct. 22, 1950.
The series told fictional stories of OSS agents during World War II who took dangerous missions behind enemy lines, knowing they may never return alive.
The series was based on the 1946 book "Cloak and Dagger: The Secret Story of the OSS". It was a tense half hour of patriots and traitors, of triumph, tragedy and failure. The stories did not always end in success -- sometimes, the hero/agent gave up his life. There were 22 episodes, broadcast in 1950.
The theme music was either identical or very similar to that used by Tales of the Texas Rangers.
Sherman Marks directed. The cast consisted of The Hungarian Giant, played by Raymond Edward Johnson, and Impy, the Midget, played by Gilbert Mack.
